Tigernuts tubers

Eggs are often called perfect ’bio-capsules’ among nutrients of animal origin coming after the most valuable nutrient; mother’s milk.

Among plant originated nutrients Tigernuts (chufa, cyperus esculentus) have the same quality. The plant was already known in Ancient Egypt and its tubers growing in the ground were widely used, and still have been used, in medicine and as food. In many places they are called the plant of survival because a daily amount of 30 grams of Tigernuts suffice to cover our daily need of nutrients and vital substances.

Its consumption is advantageous for those who suffer from allergies to different nuts and almonds. It is also a good alternative to replace cereal flours for those people who suffer from autoimmune condition. Its relatively high fibre content makes carbohydrate and sugar absorption slow therefore it is recommended for patients with diabetes.

They are suitable for making mueslis and granolas or by just chewing it we get a nutritious food. Tigernuts have a much richer content and a more reasonable price than regular almonds. It is a rich functional nutrient which is a significant part of paleo, vegan, LCHF, diabetes and other reform and special diets.
